Tiny Comedy Show at Scarpetta Italian Eatery!


On Thursday Aug 15, the tiny comedy show returns to Scarpetta Italian Eatery! Mark your calendar for a delicious evening of great food and great comedy!

Your Headliner is the amazing Pete Zedlacher! Versatile comedian, actor and writer Pete Zedlacher is a 20+ year veteran of the comedy scene and one of the premiere headliners in the country. Zedlacher, who proudly hails from Wawa, a small mining town in Northern Ontario, draws heavily from his Canadian working-class roots. A graduate of the prestigious American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York, the intensive acting program helped him infuse a theatrical element into his stand-up. Now based in Calgary, Zedlacher has a Canadian Comedy Award, four Canadian Comedy Award-nominations and two Gemini nominations to his credit. Most recently, Pete won the international comedy competition and was crowned Sirius XM’s Top Comic. This spring, Zedlacher made his remarkable 10th appearance at the Ha!ifax ComedyFest which will air on CBC television in the new season. He is probably best known for his appearances at Just for Laughs in Montreal performing galas alongside Jason Alexander, Whoopi Goldberg, Sir Patrick Stewart and the legendary Muppets. He’s also appeared at The Winnipeg Comedy Festival, JFL42 and toured with the Just For Laughs National Tour. Most recently, Petebecame the 4th member of The Snowed in Comedy Tour. The annual tour, which tours soft-seat theatres throughout the winter and spring, will now hit over 60 cities across the country, making Snowed In Canada’s biggest comedy tour.

The MC is the very funny Cory Harding ! Goofy, irreverent, clever, all are apt descriptions for Cory’s comedy. Sadly, most of the world doesn’t realize that those are good things so let’s just say he’s been called, “Very funny and very original!” by an SNL cast member and writer, he’s been told he has, “One of he most brilliant closing bits I’ve ever seen!” by a 6 time Tonight Show comedian, and the Spokane Review said, “Sick and wrong, but totally awesome!” Former scientist turned comedian, Cory holds the official record for Laughs Per Minute in a 45 minute performance at 8.5LPM! Crushing the previously held record by a full two and half laughs per minute.

Your feature performer is Neil Melrose ! Neil is the biggest Comedian in Alberta...Literally, not figuratively. He's been active in the Calgary comedy scene for a while now and has toured all around Western Canada. His brand of irreverent nerdy comedy is sure to generate huge laughs.

With comedy performances from Ryan Butterfield, Bradley Trauzzi, Kelsey Funk, Wojciech Wojtowicz, Caroline Brookfield, and as usual, Don Filipchuk!
